The Tasty Shop in 1955
This delicatessen, on Euclid Avenue near East 105th Street, just two blocks from The Temple, was a place Abba Hillel Silver would enjoy with old friends who might exchange Yiddish jokes with him.  From Cleveland Memory


The Silver family home in Shaker Heights
On Shaker Boulevard, west of Warrensville Center Road. Each year, on the afternoon of Rosh Hashana the entire congregation would be invited here, welcomed in the house and entertained in the large backyard. Mina Kulber, who attended these gatherings for more than 20 years, says that it never rained on these days. photo A Berger
